It starts in New Zealand. 10 AM and rolls around the world. The energy, the chi magnifying, enhancing breath, harmony, unity, oneness, and peace.
10 AM in Sudden Valley we catch the breath of chi on a cool breeze off the lake. Clouds hang heavy with rain. Louis and Michael start a fire to warm us after Tai Chi practice.
Debi and John’s grandson Jay strikes the Japanese gong thrice.
We practice–even the spectators join, teens to eighties– Tai Chi 24 Form and Tai Chi 48 Form…and take shelter just as rain starts to fall. It is our fifth year to gather and celebrate this worldwide celebration for peace through movement.
After a potluck of fabulous, chi-ful food, we drum under the guidance of Chrystal Lynne while the rain falls and the fire warms
Peace and gratitude to all.
